Lovely menu. Hard to choose as everything was so tempting. Was not disappointed. Very good quality food. Lady who served us was bursting with pride about the place and their chef. It was infectious but also justly earned. Thank you, we'll be back.

If you go at lunchtime make sure you take an extra jumper (and scarf, hat and gloves). It was a cold day during the Christmas period and everyone (young and old) in our party was feeling really chilled while we were sat at our table. Our request to have the heating turned on in the pub was met with the... More

The Countryman is undoubtedly my favourite pub/restaurant. The food is excellent as is the great range of real ales. Service is usually spot on and overall, this is a great place to eat. Knocks spots off those awful "plastic" chain pubs. Always a pleasure to eat here.

I think I must have caught this pub on a bad day. Firstly we had booked a table but had to wait around while a table was found, not a good start. We ordered drinks which came fairly promptly but had to wait a long time before our food order was taken. There is a strange atmosphere in this pub... More

Been here for standard lunch and a Christmas "do". Both times impressed me. They really coped well needing to feed 50 and our party went really wel. Parking a bit tight for the larger group. I will be back.

visited friday 9th december for dinner as staying local, did not book and they were full but manager let us eat in the bar area. The only negative is although the manager made room for us he was not a smiling welcoming person felt he reluctantly made room, despite this the pub is lovely with a nice vibe and was... More

We had a very good 3 course meal at lunchtime. The staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. The chips were Gluten free which was a nice surprise, and with all empty plates at each course it can certainly be recommended for a good meal.

We had a very pleasant evening with very good service and excellent food although the cheese board was a bit skimpy for the money and could have been a bit more exciting. The attitude to customers is fairly abrupt and when trying to book we wondered if they really wanted anyone to eat here, but having parted with a substantial... More

My partner and I picked this pub for a midweek dinner purely based on the reviews on this site and it really did deliver. The food was delicious, our waitress lovely, even taking the time to explain all the different ales and bring a small sample over to help us pick. Most surprisingly even though we got there at opening... More
